Five Reasons to 'Vacay' at The Waldorf Astoria Maldives


The Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi opened last week to great acclaim for its breathtaking views, myriad dining options and glorious seascapes. But there’s a lot more to this property than an aerial view can reveal.

Here are five reasons why you should aspire to have a holiday at the Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi.

1. Haircut on the Beach?

Private butler service is a signature of the Waldorf Astoria brand, but it comes with a Maldivian upgrade here.

Personal butlers are available to help you 24/7, and they are well-versed on all that the property and surrounding area has to offer. They can tell you where to go for prime snorkeling, can book spa services for you, make dinner reservations and so much more.

2. Become Robinson Crusoe

Board the property’s private yacht and set sail to explore a nearby sandbank. Here, guests can arrange for a secluded dinner paired with stunning Maldivian sunset views, unwind with a yoga session or snorkel in the surrounding water.

There is an abundance of marine life surrounding the sandbank, providing guests with an amazing snorkeling experience, and being the only person on the island provides a true Robinson Crusoe-like experience.

3. Taste the World from the Treetops and Beyond

Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi is home to 11 distinct dining venues. You can literally dine among the treetops in private bamboo pods at Terra, sample Peking duck inspired by Shanghainese noble residences at Li Long and order authentic Middle Eastern flatbreads and dishes at Yasmeen.

If you’re in the mood for barbecue, head to The Ledge, which is a restaurant partnership between the resort and world-renowned chef and mastermind behind Singapore’s Michelin-starred Burnt Ends, Dave Pynt.

4. A True Sanctuary

It is getting harder and harder to set your out-of-office reply and resist the temptation to check in back at home. The property is very much a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of life where guests can easily relax to the calming sound of the rising and falling waves and the salty smell of the Maldivian sea air.

Make sure to check out the five pools, dedicated spa villa and colorful marine life and leaving your phone in the room (once you’ve captured your photos to make friends jealous).

5. View the Stars from a Private Villa
The Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi is on a private island, so chances are you won’t often be surrounded by fellow vacationers. However, if you’re seeking a truly secluded getaway, consider booking a Stella Maris Ocean Villa. These two villas are separated from the main resort and accessible only by boat.
Looking down on the resort from above is stunning enough. Looking up at the stars from the roof of your private villa, though – with the waves lapping the shores around you – is a transcendent experience.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
